The library mentionned in the title was introduced for kde4.5 to store the 
code that is common to the oxygen style and the decodation. (while we where 
using svn::external before). I really like the change. 
Now I noticed that some packagers (Mandriva Cooker at least), made it a 
separate rpm (here: liboxygenstyle4-4.5.67-2mdv2011.0). 
I think its a very bad idea in my opinion, because I made no attempts to keep 
Binary (or even API) compatibility between the two (expecting that the library 
will always be part of kdebase/workspace pacakges, and always be build against 
matching oxygen style and decoration. 

Does anyone know how to advertise for _not_ making a different package with 
this part of the code ? Is it the right mailing list to ask ? 

Thanks in advance,
